TMZ is reporting that Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI while driving in Maryland late last night.

Michael Phelps Olympics

Phelps was reportedly doing 84 in a 45 mph zone when he was stopped by officers who immediately realized the record breaking swimmer was very drunk.

Sources say Phelps didn't make it through his field sobriety and a breathalyzer indicated that his BAC was nearly twice the legal limit.

This isn't the first time Phelps has been busted for driving under the influence.

In 2004, a then 19-year-old Phelps was pulled over and found to be intoxicated. He struck a plea deal and got off with 18 months probation.

Phelps cleaned up his act and went on to win an astonishing 18 Olympic gold medals.

In 2008 the so-called Flying Fish slipped up again, however, as Phelps was caught smoking weed while partying with college kids.

Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct during Monday night's game for dropping to his knees in prayer.

Husain Abdullah Prayer

The defensive player had just intercepted a Tom Brady pass and taken it to the house as part of the home team's 41-14 demolition of New England.

Upon scoring his second career touchdown, the 29-year-old Abdullah then slid to his knees and bowed in celebration - not to himself, but to Allah.

If there is any doubt as to what Abdullah was doing, his brother and former NFL safety Hamza Abdullah exclaimed on Twitter: "ALLAHU AKBAR!"

A devout Muslim who sat out the entire 2012 season to make Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, Husain drew a penalty for his end zone display.

Many fans in the stadium and on Twitter were upset, believing there's no way he should have had a penalty called on him for what he did on the field.

His agent also weighed in on the issue, Tweeting, "If the NFL tries to fine @HAbdullah39 for his TD celebration there's going to be some problems."

Much of Kaley Cuoco's Instagram page is devoted to singing the praises of her husband, Ryan Sweeting.

Now that Kaley and Ryan are creeping up on one year of marriage, however, we're beginning to see some cracks in their facade of perfection.

Last week, Kaley admitted to asking Ryan's permission before getting a haircut - a confession that definitely rubbed some of KC's feminist fans the wrong way.

Prior to that, Cuoco-Sweeting divorce rumors circulated following the reports of a blowout fight at Emmy awards after party.

Now, in perhaps the clearest sign of trouble in paradise thus far, Kaley posted a video of herself handing out a straight-up whuppin' to Ryan  ... on the tennis court!

Ha! Lost to a girl! Oh well, no big real, right? 

Well, it wouldn't be, were it not for the fact that Ryan still considers himself to be a professional tennis player.

Derek Jeter will soon end his professional baseball career. But it's clear which occupation he should take on next:

Hollywood screenwriter.

The future Hall of Famer played his final home game tonight (and his final game overall at shortstop), finishing with three runs batted in, one run scored and, oh, the GAME-WINNING SINGLE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE NINTH.

Jeter rules

In truly ridiculous fashion that no one could possibly have seen coming, closer Dave Robertson blew a three-run lead in the top of the ninth, seemingly putting a damper on Jeter's final appearance in the Bronx...

ESPN has suspended Bill Simmons for three weeks.

The company took this action against Simmons (who runs the website Grantland) after he went off on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell during a recent podcast, labeling Goodell a "liar" following the executive's press conference on Monday.

Referring to the Ray Rice video - which features the former running back knocking out his then-fiancee inside an elevator - Simmons said of Goodell:

"If he didn’t know what was on that tape, he’s a liar... If you put him up on a lie-detector test, that guy would fail. And for all these people to pretend they didn’t know is such fuc-ing bullsh-t. It really is... And for him to go in that press conference and pretend otherwise, I was so insulted.”

NASCAR star Tony Stewart will not face criminal charges resulting from the death of Kevin Ward Jr., who was struck and killed by Stewart in a race this summer.

A grand jury investigating the case decided earlier today to close the potential case against Stewart, citing no evidence of legal wrongdoing on his part.

On the night of his death, Kevin Ward Jr. was killed by Stewart's car, a tragedy by any measure, but one that many felt also may have been a criminal act.

Ward got out of his car and aggressively moved toward Stewart's vehicle, which hit him seconds later and was seen in a video that shocked the sports world.

There was suspicion after the accident that Stewart was angry with Ward Jr. over an incident earlier in the race and may have intentionally swerved into him.

He denied this, and apparently the grand jury agreed, determining that it was nothing more than an accident and declining to pursue a case against him.

Soccer star Hope Solo is kicking back against the hacker who has released naked photos of herself and many other female stars online.

The athlete is one of MANY women whose privacy has been invaded over the past few weeks, but one of the few who has released a statement in regard to the incident.

Hope Solo at the ESPYs

"It is extremely sad and unfortunate that the rights of so many women were violated by the unauthorized release of private photographs," Solo said late yesterday, adding:

"This act goes beyond the bounds of human decency and, as such, I stand united with all the women affected and am exploring every option to protect my privacy."

The Hollywood hacking scandal went viral earlier this month when snapshots of Jennifer Lawrence nude and Kate Upton nude, among countless others, hit the Web.

Only the Detroit Lions, folks.

Only the Detroit Lions could lose even when they win.

In the first quarter of yesterday’s impressive 19-7 victory over the Green Bay Packers, linebacker Stephen Tulloch celebrated an impressive defensive effort by him and his colleagues.

He made some kind of hand gesture. He leaped in the air. And then he came down awkwardly on his left, injuring his ACL so badly that he never returned to the game.

Watch the LOL action now:

We feel (a little) bad for Tulloch, but we also thank him for the much-needed laughter.

DeShawn Shead enjoyed a memorable day yesterday. His NFL team won ... and he won at life by getting engaged to his longtime girlfriend Jessica Martinez!

After the Seattle Seahawks beat the visiting Denver Broncos, 26-20, the 25-year-old defensive back provided the day's real fireworks in the Emerald City.

Cue Bruno Mars‘ aptly titled, “Marry You,” which began playing over the loudspeakers, and a message that read “Will You Marry Me Jessica,” on the scoreboard.

Shead's family and friends crowded around DeShawn, who had showered and gotten dressed, as he shocked Jessica by getting down on one knee on the field.

Needless to say, she accepted the proposal.

“Football brought me to Washington, for me to meet her, so I think this is a big part of our relationship,” Shead told local KIRO after the big moment.
